PLEASE NOTE, FOR THIS VACANCY,  WE WILL ONLY ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FROM JOB SEEKERS WITH:

  2. AN HGV LICENSE (able to drive a 26t lorry)
 *Salary IRO £400/£450+ top, top wage for previous competition grooming experience depending on experience *Own horse and pets welcomed *Partner welcomed

This vacancy is a lovely and rare opportunity for an experienced Groom who combines the experience of working on a family yard, with performance horse know how ideally gained within a SJ/jumping environment to work as a competition Groom or would suit someone already experienced in Competition grooming.

This family of young riders are very active most weekends and therefore you will need to be prepared to cover this, although some weekends off are available by prior arrangement and exception.

  • You will need to be flexible to work 5.5 sometimes 6 days a week
  • Must be prepared to cover weekends and stay away
  • You will need to be flexible enough to handle an environment where things change regularly as it is a fast-paced, rapidly expanding scenario. You would need to take this in your stride and it would be ideal if you saw this as invigorating and exciting rather than a nuisance!

The family have 18 quality jumping horses  (currently managed by 2 FT/ 1pt & the Yard manager/ trainer) and  on a second yard, an assortment of broodmares and young stock, (hopefully destined for a career in SJ/jumping.) 

The family consists of non-riding dad who is looking forward to spending more time with his family as part of their journey, mum who is an experienced horsewoman and 3 daughters (aged 12-15 years old) who are very keen indeed. The girls all do BSJ and want to eventually do European tours & be on YR teams. They are the focus of the role and all activities that go on with both yards, will underpin these equestrian dreams.

Please call Caroline & the Team on 0203 006 5730 or email info@carolinecarterrecruitment.com
